Cluny, LePuy and Continental Guipure

Information

Cluny, LePuy and Continental Guipure

This group is for Cluny, LePuy and continental guipure bobbin laces -- straight laces with a 4 strand braid/plait ground.  Designs may be geometric (Cluny) or floral (continental guipure).  Cluny designs often have a snaky clothwork trail meandering through the design. This trail uses the "passée a cheval" method, not the same as the Bedfordshire method.  LePuy designs usually have a cloth trail, but it is worked somewhat differently from either Beds or Cluny.  LePuy designs often have some very complex braided/plaited grounds. This group also includes Danish guipure lace, which are usually floral.

What lovely tallies in colour. I have the Cluny de Briode book, - and have mentally planned to have a go at one or 2 of the patterns - but working them in Tatting, as I mainly do that now (health problems make bobbin lace hard for me.)

Now I can make Tatted Cluny Leaves (Tallies!) I thought some of the patterns would adapt to tatting quite well.   It is on my "To Do" list!!!

A very nice book with interpretation of old pattern of Cluny to new designs with polychrome!

I had a look at that site. Lovely lace.  Oh!  I Must have a go at this type of lace - I have the Polychrome book on Cluny de Briode.  Tallies don't bother me, but I have never tried them with each one a different colour!!   they are all so well made. I wish mine looked as even as these ones.  Some of mine still come out a bit like Holly leaves!!
